Halloween Wicked Witch of the West Selfie – Photoshop Tutorial

Hi Lovelies,

as you might know by now if you follow this Blog on the regular Halloween is coming up and that means it’s time for a new Photoshop tutorial.

Every year for Halloween I change my profile picture on social media. Last year I turned into a Skeleton. I also used Photoshop once to turn myself into a demon for Halloween. For Halloween 2015 I will transform myself into the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz. Also known as Elphaba, Theodora or Zelena. Actually Zelena from the TV show Once upon a time inspired me to create this Halloween picture. I know you’re all waiting for the tutorial. So let’s start. It’s a super easy and fast step by step Photoshop tutorial.

Antler ring holder DIY

Who doesn’t love some upcycling? Raise your hands or better leave a comment! :) This organic looking antler ring holder is done in under 2 minutes with only 4 key materials.

Tomato Salad with Garlic Bread

It’s tomato season! My parents have a ton of tomato plans in their backyard so everytime I visit them my mom hands me a huge bunch. They planted lots of old sorts. Do you see that funky green yellow marbled one? Best tomato I’ve ever had. Slightly sweet and freshly sour.I wish I had more of those. Nom nom nom. Oh and that Bread pictured? Baked by my parents neighbour! Seriously this is just perfect. I love homegrown fruits and vegetables. It just tastes better, don’t you agree? Well so given these two main ingredients I decided to make a Tomato Salad with Garlic Bread for dinner. Want the recipe? Here you go!

Two Ingredients Clay Mask

Luckily I’m blessed with pretty good skin but once in a while I do need to nourish my skin a bit. A healing clay mask is a real wonder worker at doing so. It’s all natural and made out of only two key ingredients. If you please you can add any ingredient that works well on your skin. I added a list of things that you could add to the clay mask if you feel liket it. As I get older I notice how important it is to take care of myself (which includes my skin and my general health as well). A clay mask can help treat acne, blackheads and pimples, cleans the skin and helps against skin-, muscle- and joint pain as well as inflammations. See? A real natural silver bullet!

Quinoa Sweet Potato Feta Salad

Yay for summer weather and finally being done with my bachelor thesis. Now I got some time on my hand before my student life is over and my job ist starting. It’s really hot here in Germany. About 36-38 degree Celsius. It’s way too hot to eat anything heavy for lunch or even for dinner. Since I’m still a student (for 2 more month) I live on a budget. In my fridge I had an open package of feta cheese, a sweet potato, onions and quinoa. And my freezer had some frozen spinach in it. So what to do? Well mix it all together and see what happens!
